Partitionen unter Windows 2003 mit Dell ExtPart erweitern

Wenn man an einem Windows Server 2003 ungenutzten Festplatten-Platz nutzen möchte, kann man eine Partition im laufenden Betrieb mit dem Tool „ExtPart“ von Dell vergrößern.

Einzige Voraussetzung ist, dass der freie Speicherbereich direkt hinter der bereits vorhandenen Partition hängt, so wie hier:

Hier kann man das Tool runterladen:

http://ftp.dell.com/app/ExtPart.exe

Nun einfach das Programm über die CMD aufrufen:

extpart <Partition>: <Größe>

Wenn man die System-Festplatte (C:) um 1GB vergrößern will, sieht der Aufruf also so aus:

extpart c: 1024

Gegebenenfalls

  • Den „Indexdienst“ beenden
  • Den „IIS“ beenden

Weitere Infos gibt’s ansonsten noch hier bei Dell:
